GODFREY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 20 March 1869

GOD.FREY'S CKEEK. (From our own Correspondent.) The Working Miner's claim, in which pay able gold was first discovered, have taken up seventeen frontage claims, which are now being placed under lease and registered under the Limited Liability Act. Five other claims have bottomed on payable gold, three north and two south. Some Ballarat and Mel bourne capitalists are now applying for large leases, and no doubt this will be one of the most extensive leads discovered for years as the flat extends 15 miles until it joins the Goulburn river. The manager of the Working Miner's reports -l'he above claim is now in full work so far as is practicable without machinery. The extent of ground held is 70 acres which is now being placed under lease which will give them about 1600 feet on the gutter. The shaft is on the south boundary, and the total amount of bottom uncovered is 1,516 feet superficial measurement, with an average of two feet of washdirt, giving a total of 3,016 cubic feet.

On the goldfields the sly-grog seller seems to flourilsh and batten upon his prey almost unmolested, whilst the legiti mate dealer in spirituous liquors is bound down by so many pains and pennlties that at most he earns bat a very precarious livelihood. In those shanties the nightly dance and revel are kept up, the drunken orgies carried far into the broad day light, and scenes enacted which are perfectly revolting to human nature, without the slightest notice being taken of their existence either by thel public or the police, so mtch so that they have come to be looked upon as an institution in Victoria.

DOINGS AT THlE BOARD.

There tragedy,, comedy, and burlesque, form the bill of fare, and crowded houses are the result. When the actors stoop to the "legitimate business" the "attendance is poor, but there is always a trump card for the mmnagement to fall brqik upon, and that is the creation of some grand tableau by members of the company. The performances hitherto have been so successful that I am afraid the number of tickets will have to be limited so as to give the actors full scope to strut their little hour upon the stage for the delectation of their admiring auditory. It would not be a bad plan to post a programme of the performance on the no...
